Close family, friends, colleagues or even acquaintances can attest for my love or should I accurately say obsessions for macaroon, French patisseries and all sorts of desserts. A trip to Paris or anywhere in France will certainly involve a stop at a French Patisserie shop just so I can have a nice tarte aux pomme, chouquette or tarte aux citron. As my lovely family and friends read this blog, I am sure they will be shaking their heads as they remember the times I’ve dragged them on a very long detour trip just so we can try a patisserie, ice-cream or dessert that I’ve read about somewhere.
Food for me is a pleasure to be shared and enjoyed. Thus, I have made it my mission in life to always take my family and friends along in my food adventures around the world and on many cases experiment my new recipes on them.
Aside from my French patisserie obsessions there is also no way I will take a plane back to U.K from Italy without having a creamy, heavenly gelato that just melts away under the Tuscan sun. A trip to Italy is not complete without an ice-cream tour.
Equally, there is no way on earth I will take a flight back to UK from L.A without stopping at Randy’s Donuts. My donut obsession started as a child, unfortunately for my mother who introduced me to donut my addiction to the yummy hollow donut did not diminish as I grew older. In fact, the donut obsession just grew with me. As I was growing up I discovered that there were in fact so much more flavours to choose from and try. My love for donuts therefore continues and my Mom certainly encouraged it or should I say shared those donut moments with me.
Dunkin Donut’s strawberry and lemon frost were once a favourite when I was 7 years old, then there was the munchkins when I was 9, then came the Spanish churros con chocolate and Krispy Kreme and finally Randy’s donuts.
Randy’s donuts are freshly made every day, the old fashion glaze donuts are nice and hollow in the inside, not too sweet, has a lovely crunch to it and they are not stodgy at all. That means you can have two donuts instead of just having one. An opportunity to try more flavours!
Randy specialises in donuts, it’s what they do best and they are certainly well known for it. There’s always a long queue and there will always be, so be prepared to wait if you do visit. Randy’s donut is just a ‘drive-thru’ establishment so there won’t be a place to sit either. It is a bakery and a landmark building in Inglewood, California, near Los Angeles International Airport. It has a giant donut structure that will be so hard to miss. According to Wikipedia the first Giant Donut was built in 1953 there were 10, though only 4 giant donut structures are left today.
Randy serves a variety of donut flavours that comes in different shapes and sizes. There’s the Texas glazed, raspberry or lemon jelly donuts, long john bar donuts with chocolate and maple syrup and the list goes on and on. Aside from donuts they also sell cookies, bagels, brownies, croissant, coffee, tea, other refreshments and souvenirs for the donut super fans! If you are a donut super fan then I would highly recommend a visit to Randy’s. The gigantic donut structure is so big and visible in the highway that it would be impossible to miss it. When I first saw the giant donut it made me giggle so much that I couldn’t breathe, the donuts at Randy’s are super delicious that it will make your trip certainly worthwhile! Happy donut eating!
